Research & Collaboration

Dimensions Education Programs is a branch of the Dimensions Educational Research Foundation. Each of our teachers serves as a co-researcher documenting children’s learning. We serve as the primary research and field-testing site for the Foundation. This research supports publications, resources, educator workshops, and the creation of natural materials distributed through the Nature Explore program. Nature Explore is a comprehensive program of services and resources working nationally to bring the joys of nature to children’s lives.

Dimensions Education Programs is located at First-Plymouth Church. We are an inclusive welcoming community program that does not include any religious teaching. We serve children from all over Lincoln and surrounding communities. Children with special needs are integrated into our classrooms with support from Lincoln Public Schools. Several local colleges and universities place students in our program for practicum and student teaching experiences. Many educators visit us to learn about incorporating our philosophy and see our Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom.

Families and staff work together to provide enriching experiences. Many opportunities are available for families to be involved during and outside of the school day. We welcome your ideas and participation!
